Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics Introduces the Next Generation Buccal Tubes
Nickel Titanium Wire Delivers Biologically Correct Forces
Islandia, NY (For immediate release)—Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics, a division of Dentsply Sirona (NASDAQ: XRAY) announced the introduction of BioForce PLUS, an updated version of their popular nickel titanium (NiTi) BioForce archwire line. BioForce PLUS differentiates itself from many NiTi archwires with a graded thermodynamic formulation, allowing it to deliver predetermined force levels to specific areas during orthodontic treatment.
“BioForce PLUS is a biologically correct archwire,” said Louis Chouinard, Global Product Manager for GAC products at Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics. “Because it takes less force to move a small, single-rooted lower anterior tooth than a large, tri-rooted molar, each wire is precision engineered to deliver the appropriate force needed to move teeth in each region. The forces start low in the central teeth and then gradually increase to the molars. Essentially it’s a ‘smart’ wire.”
BioForce PLUS archwires combine a wealth of metallurgical, technological and clinical expertise to achieve their unique mechanical properties. By delivering only the biologically-appropriate forces, BioForce PLUS wires eliminate the excessive or undesired force that can be experienced in single zone wires. In addition to clinical benefits, this property can also impact the bottom line.
“With time being the most valuable resource most practices have to allocate, BioForce PLUS can be a real game changer when it comes to the business aspect of treatment. It allows the clinician the option of leveling, aligning and initiating torque expression simultaneously, potentially reducing the number of archwire changes in their treatment plan,” added Chouinard.
BioForce PLUS wires are also available with the patented IonGuard process. IonGuard isn’t a coating, but a fundamental change to the wire surface. It creates a hard, low-friction hydrophilic surface without changing any of the wire’s unique superelastic properties. It delivers sliding mechanics comparable to stainless steel, while sealing the occlusal surface to reduce any potential nickel leaching.
BioForce PLUS archwires are available exclusively through the official Dentsply Sirona Orthodontic distribution channels.
